An advertising campaign for Brazilian Pediatric organisation warns expectant mothers about the effects their food and drink intake can have on their unborn children. Women with good nutrition are more likely to have babies born with cancer suppressing gene variant.
A recent study by Robert Waterland, an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, found that healthy diets of pregnant mothers could result in babies developing a gene variant that suppresses tumors.
However, if a pregnant mother does not have good nutrition, her baby’s immune system is less likely to activate the cancer fighting gene variant.
